Driver arrested after two-hour chase


June 21, 2009 04:37pm

A DISQUALIFIED driver faces multiple charges after leading police on a two-hour chase around Newcastle and Lake Macquarie in a stolen car.

The pursuit began after the Holden Rodeo, stolen from Georgetown on Saturday, failed to stop for a random breath test on the Pacific Highway at Charlestown at about 2am (AEST) this morning.

It was followed through a number of suburbs, with police having to call off the pursuit at times.

Officers used road spikes to deflate the driver's side front tyre at Warners Bay, but the pursuit continued at low speeds through Cardiff and Glendale.

The driver eventually stopped just after 4am on Main Road at Glendale and was arrested without incident.

The 25-year-old West Wallsend man was taken to The Mater Hospital for blood and urine samples.

He faces 17 charges, including driving while disqualified, breach of bond, car theft and driving in a dangerous manner.

He was refused bail to appear in Newcastle Local Court on Monday.
